Business Leadership – Becoming a Great Leader

Course Contents

Course Contents

Course Duration

Three days


At its core, leadership means setting goals, lighting a path, and persuading others to follow. Nonetheless,the responsibility entails much more. Leaders must get their message out in a way that inspires, makes the most of their limited time and builds roads to precious resources. They must negotiate alliances, improve their team productivity, and align the ambitions of the many with the needs of the organisation.

What makes for a great leader? Is it something to do with inward characteristics, such as confidence and focus? Is it more about outward presence, including charm and compassion? Or is it about the ability to create a vision and get others to commit to it?

The answer is all of the above. By accepting the challenge to lead, you come to realise that the only limits are those you place on yourself.

This three-day workshop is a tool for your leadership development. It is designed to help you create and accomplish your personal best, and to help you lead others to get extraordinary things done.

Target Audience

The course is aimed at those who would like to improve their leadership skills to become managers, for those who are newly appointed to the leader or manager role, or for those who are due to be promoted.


This course assumes no prior training within this subject.
